In this workshop, local partners at Backflip will help students tap their creativity to make a video in a format of documentary, motion graphics, or live action.

Teachers will walk them through the stages of film production. We’ll explore how movies are made, what digital technology is based upon, and how it works, and we’ll get to view some cool video to see how the pros do it.

Summer workshops are a fantastic way to engage the mind and keep boredom at bay this summer for any student entering 5-9th grade. Workshop is held 10 AM – 2 PM daily.
